Ugh - I really am kind of freaking out about this. Funny you say that about her excuse because I've seen other brides say (when she did finally respond) she gave them other excuses like her laptop crashed or she couldn't get on the internet, etc. etc. That is just not okay with me and, yes, $2,500 is a ton of money! To be honest, the brides who did eventually get their photos - I'm not sure if they ever got their albums or slideshows??
I just emailed WPAJ and, on a long shot, asked if any of their photographers are available on my date. They were in my top 3 and since they have several photographers I'm thinking one may be free that day? I just want to know if I have a viable back up option. If I do, ideally she would agree to give me my deposit back and we could go with someone else. That would be my best case scenario right now.
Really appreciate your candid feedback - even though it stresses me out - it is exactly what I was worried about already! The negative concerns/issues are abundant and consistent so I know it isn't isolated.
@beckys98-Don't know if I'm using this forum properly! Sorry if I'm not. I don't see how she can expect payment before your wedding!! What if she choses not to show up?! We paid her in cash the day of our wedding. She is so unprofessional and has caused me nothing but stress.... I did email her the other day saying that she has until June 10th to have my pictures delivered or else I will start posting horrible reviews. I don't understand. When I booked her all the reviews were so postive and it seems in 2015 things have gone downhill! I have been in contact with several people on FB who have the same issues I have! She wrote me a FB message in March saying she was involved in a hit and run and then in april she said that she was in the hospital with dyhydration and exhaustion! I was sympatetic to both of those messages but not its just ridulous. I'm losing my patience! $2500 US is alot to lose with no wedding pics in sight!!
